Tuesday, October 9: “Native American Settlement and Archeology in the Champlain Valley”
Speaker: Chris Wolff is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology, SUNY Plattsburgh and an archaeologist with a research focus on the prehistory of North America, particularly regarding human-environment interaction.
“The focus of much of the archaeological research in the North Country is on the amazing historical events of our region, including battles during the War of Independence, the War of 1812 events, and the Underground Railroad, to name but a few.
However, this region has been inhabited by indigenous peoples long before the arrival of Europeans; yet, we know little of this dynamic history of colonization, settlement, and land use. This lecture will discuss our current knowledge, results from recent excavations in the area, and new research initiatives.” (Lyceum Series – Whallonsburg Grange Hall)

What are the Whallonsburg Grange Lyceums?
“Lyceums flourished in the United States from the mid-19th century and were important in the development of adult education. Lecturers, musicians, singers and readers traveled the “lyceum circuit,” going from town to town to entertain, speak, or debate.
